Curried Lamb Tacos for Curry Week

 Next week, October 9th til the 15th is National Curry Week here in the UK!  I was challenged by Tasty Easy Lamb to come up with an Indian Tapas kind of a dish, something quick and easy but also delicious!  You know how much I love a challenge.  As soon as I was asked, the wheels in my food-loving brain started turning. This is what I came up with!

Lamb is such a diverse meat and its really fun to take it beyond the traditional "roasted and served with mint box" that we tend to pigeon-hole it in.  It wasn't really something that I had eaten much of prior to moving over here to the UK, but something which I have fallen totally in love with over the past seventeen odd years.

Curry was also something which I had a limited experience with. I had spent a number of years on an armed forces base in Western Canada, which happened to be the British Army Training Unit in Canada.  I was introduced to Curry there by some friends we made which happened to be British and fell in love.

How amazing that I would get to combine these two great loves in one unique challenge!  

Meet Curried Lamb Tacos!  I know that Tacos are traditionally a Mexican thing, but bear with me here . . . this is truly fusion cuisine! Indian flavours, with British Lamb . . .  put together with a tex mex twist!

Quick, easy and delicious!  I used leg of lamb steaks, well trimmed and thinly sliced and then chopped.  The meat is lean and fabulous.  This gets marinated for about 15 minutes in a fusion of Indian curry spices with  splash of hot green pepper sauce (which I have just discovered and love, LOVE) . . .  I chose to use a Madras Curry Powder because I wanted some heat . . . but if you are not fond of heat you can use a milder one.
 You soften some onion in a skiller and then  add the meat and brown it all over.  A bit of Indian beer gets poured on top and then the whole mixture is simmered until totally tender while you put together the cucumber raita topping and heat the folded flat breads. This takes literally minutes, no longer than fifteen.
  Fill your warm flatbreads with some shredded lettuce and sliced cucumber and then pile on that delicious lamb curry mixture, a nice bit of cooling raitia and a dollop of good mango chutney and Sanjay is your Uncle!  They are ready to be scarfed down and enjoyed with some more cold Indian beer!  These are sooooo delicious!  I have found a new love . . .  and it is Curried Lamb Tacos!
